Saving Starbucks

Did you notice the sinking stock price of Starbucks? This year they already closed 205 of the 600 stores slated to be shuttered by the end of (fiscal) 2009. Daddy says we should help them out. These days I stop by the one on Route 10 every weekend, my favorites are their Chocolate Truffle and Apple Galette.

Poor turkey

Today is Thanksgiving. My lazy mom and dad did not cook anything, they said we will buy a big and delicious turkey meal from store. We drove to Boston Market, surprisingly we were not the only lazy ones, there was a long line. When it was finally our turn to order, they ran out of turkey! So we had chicken this year.

By the way, do you know how much turkey Americans eat on Thanksgiving Day?

535 million pounds!

Do you know how many turkeys that is?

45 million poor birds :-(
